The Three Muses Challenge - Song Lyrics




I have chosen the beautiful Beatles song, "Eleanor Rigby".  It paints a word picture that is sad and touching and memorable.

Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people.
Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice
In the church where a wedding has been.
Lives in a dream.
Waits at the window, wearing the face
She keeps in a jar by the door.
Who is it for?
All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?
